Best practises updating Arch.
After years of using all kinds of *nixes, I now have Arch installed. And I love it!
There are some horror stories on the update procedure (pacman -Syu) that leaves the whole distro in tatters... I think those are just incidents, but I am using Arch just over a week or two, so what do I know huh? :-)
I also know that all distro's (and their respective packagemanegers) have their quirks and specific requirements.
What are your tips for updating the system? Should I boot in third runlevel and update from there, or do it on the fly from the xterminal while I continue working on my projects?
Anyone with some good advise on this subject?
